Years of research, tasting and retesting and the pure, local Finnish water used in Kalevala Gin, have created a wonderfully fresh, savoury flavour.
A multicultural background, diverse interests and constant curiosity made Moritz Wüstenberg a master distiller. During frequent visits to his mother´s home in Finland he developed a keen interest in Finland and Finnish culture. For centuries the Kitee region close to the Russian/Finnish border has been (in)famous for producing spirits. A long term ambition to honour the regional tradition of distilling unique products came to life in 2015.
Named after a Finnish Epic, Kalevala Gin is a gin driven by attention to detail. It is made using organic botanicals including; raspberry leaf, rosemary, rosebud and Jerusalem artichoke along with water from their own well to create a gin which is as intriguing as it's namesake poem.
Rich juniper is immediately apparent on the nose, while rosemary and raspberry leaf combine on the palate to create a wonderfully fresh yet slightly savoury taste.
This gin is great! Would recommend trying this if you haven't done so already. Small Batch Gin from Finland, this goes really well with cranberries and a squeeze of lime juice. Always one to have in the collection.
